How to Join the GEO Working Group

This page describes how to become a participant in the Internationalization Guidelines, Education & Outreach (GEO) Working Group. Participation in the Working Group enables you to influence the development of the deliverables, and you and your organisation will be listed, where appropriate, as contributors to the deliverables of the Working Group. Ongoing participant status, however, requires a continued commitment on your behalf to support the work of the group.

NOTE: If you are unable to make the required commitment, you can still follow the work by accessing the Internationalization Web site, the public mail archive, and all public GEO documents. You are also encouraged to participate in the Internationalization Interest Group via the www-international list.
